Hat-Trick #1: Against Ajax Amsterdam
Two hat-tricks in four days. Or six goals in 180 minutes of football.
The goal machine that’s Cristiano Ronaldo continues to roar relentlessly as the most expensive player in the world put Ajax Amsterdam to the sword a few nights after extinguishing Deportivo La Coruna in the league.
Lionel Messi beware, Ronaldo seems to have his crosshairs firmly on the next Ballon d’Or prize.
“Sad” a few weeks back, the Portuguese superstar has now almost singlehandedly reversed Real Madrid’s fortunes, helping them to four consecutive victories.
Scoring is never a problem for Ronaldo – he has struck more than 300 goals professionally – and so is scoring trebles
